Environmental Policy Statement

Consumer Direct Lighting is actively committed to pursue a policy of continuous environmental improvement.

We seek to achieve this by working towards greater sustainability throughout our organisation and by aiming to introduce environmental considerations in all of our activities. This will be achieved by actions such as energy conservation, fuel-efficient transport, recycling and responsible purchasing.

Environmental regulations, laws and codes of practice will be regarded as setting minimum standards of environmental performance. Higher levels of performance will be pursued where feasible.

Managing Director

Environmental Responsibilities

CDL has recognised the need to be socially responsible in the way we conduct our business.

Understanding the environmental impact our company has:

As a service provider, we recognise the environmental impact our operation can make in terms of fuel usage by our operational vehicles and disposal of waste from sites that we maintain on behalf our customers. CDL is registered with the Environment Agency (see enclosed registration document).

Recycling your waste:

Two years ago we initiated a recycling scheme for waste materials removed from sites we maintain. This initiative was driven by feedback from our customers and by legislation.

Currently, CDL recycles hazardous lamps, light fittings and lampposts that we remove from sites we maintain.

Suppliers of lamps used:

We purchase our lamps from manufacturers who are classified as “Producers” under the Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Regulations 2006 (WEEE Directive).

These companies are legally required to satisfy a duty to make provision for the collection and disposal of products covered by the directive. They have set up a compliance scheme to ensure that all lamps purchased from them by CDL are collected and disposed of effectively. As a consequence, we class ourselves as a responsible purchaser.

Safe Disposal of Hazardous Lamps

We are pleased to confirm that CDL disposes of all hazardous lamps removed from properties maintained by its engineers in accordance with the Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005.

CDL undertakes to arrange the safe and legal disposal of waste coming into their control.

CDL warrants that the waste removed from sites it maintains, may contain hazardous lamps as defined in Hazardous Waste Regulations 2005 (European Waste Catalogue Codes: 20 01 21 – fluorescent tubes / compact fluorescent lamps; 16 02 13 – High Pressure Sodium, Metal halide (HQI / PAR), MBFU).

CDL manages waste comprising end of life fluorescent and gas discharge lamps in compliance with the WEEE Directive (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment Regulations 2006). These lamps are crushed by a licensed waste treatment company and materials are reclaimed for re-use.

CDL is registered with The Environment Agency: Registration No: NAU241
